what we're learning are the broad framework that sort of allows the nsa to collect their surveillance and the legal thinking behind their justifications for the surveillance, but we're going to get a lot more detail, we're told, about exactly what the government does when they're looking through e-mails and looking through phone records, et cetera. so i think there is more information to come. that's some big news. boy, did they cover the range of topics. i was at the end of the press conference and they got through most of my questions. so by the end, you could see him, he usually gets a little bit testy at the very end. so can you sometimes get the most fire riery answer when he a little tired by then. but he seemed very subdued today. very calm. in the first term he would get much more prickly in these settings. he just doesn't seem to get all that riled up now. seems like not a lot will bother him. he did get a little on edge about obama. a range of issues and that's only touch of emotion i saw from him. >> he talked about putin's slouch, he looks likes the bored kid at the back o
to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what these programs can do, the scope of them, the magnitude, and how to bring about more transparency. what could be declassified? we've seen steps toward that already with some of the details of these programs no
're basically getting a newhe roommate, the nsa, and you cann kiss the 4th amendment good-bye. we know companies like microsoft are willing to cooperate with nsa. a if you report says local law l enforcement agencies are taking information surveillance fromsa the nsa and arresting americans because of that surveillance. what you're doing is inviting the government into your home. that, to me, is very dangerous. >> wayne, you have to be careful what you wear when you're watching tv. they might flip the switch and v watch you right back? >> that's true. and i agree.hey it's a terrible thing to have the government watching you for anything. federal geet the government out of awful our lives. however, nobody is forcing you once again to buy that particular television that has a that camera in it.at c it's like buying a gun. you know a gun can kill somebody, might even kill you if you own the gun. so you got to be careful.n. so if you buy that television that has that camera, you're taking that risk. you don't have to -- wayne -- nobody is forcing you, but you buy the tv with the expectation thatpect
the fun way, from phillips'. >>> new this morning, a top official is pushing back against a report the nsa frequently violated privacy rules after the "washington post" published documents released by edward snowden saying the nsa overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since congress granted it broad new powers in 2008. the number was extremely low compared with overall activities. they are vowing more oversight. joining me now is ed o'keefe and wanda summers. public affairs and media affairs releasing this statement. nsa's foreign collection activities are continually audited and overseen internally and externally. when nsa makes a mistake, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. nancy pelosi calls this extremely disturbing. ed, you cover congress. what are you hearing from reactions? >> nancy pelosi and dianne feinstein, the type of people who would know what's going on because they serve on the intelligence committee. she has been on the intelligence committee for years and has been receiving them
from edward snowden. the report shows the nsa broke privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of time each year since congress gave the surveillance agency proud, new powers in 2008. "the washington post" says they got a response from an official saying the nsa is a human-run agencies and often times workers find themselves on the wrong side of the line. president obama had a panel of outside intelligence advisers. but that panel of 14 is now down to four people and the white house says last week it's turning to brand-new, and still undetermined outside experts to look over the nsa's actions. there is a special court that's designated to oversee these surveillance agencies. how the nsa went against court orders -- when i see you at 8:15. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> there's new developments surrounding snoerden. he's accused of downloading materials about u.s. and british spying programs while he was working last year for dell. intelligence agencies say he left dell for a government contractor in march to specifically get access to more top-event files. in
rules for the nsa. but will his plan for the agency's controversy surveillance limit its scope. we will take a look at the details. >>> detroit may be the biggest u.s. city to ever declare bankruptcy. as it tries to fight its way back from a full-on collapse seems like the motor city's woes could have a major impact on other cities across the as we 9 embassies and consulate that were closed as a result of an al qaeda terror threat will reopen tomorrow, we will take a look at what motivated the change and what this means for an apparently ongoing threat. >> they had the capacity to go after our embassies. they have the capacity potentially to go after our businesses. they had the capacity to be destabilizing and disruptive in countries where the security apparatus are weak. i should definitely do laundry more often. yeah. by the time i do there's all these mystery stains. i mean is it coffee? could be gravy. yeah. so now i u tide boost with my tide. it's double powerful for when things get doubliffy. [ female announcer ] together, tide and tide boost double your power against stain
obama appears to be feeling the heat from the nsa leaker edward snowden's revelations about what the intelligence knows about your e-mail, telephone access. the president outlined a four-point plan to reform intelligence gathering, especially as it touches american citizens. >> first, i will work with congress to pursue appropriate reforms to section 215 of the patriot act. the program that collects telephone records. second, i'll work with congress to improve the public's confidence in the oversight conducted by the foreign intelligence surveillance court. so specifically, we can take steps to make sure civil liberties and the government's position is challenged by an adversary. number three, we can and must be more transparent. so i've directed the intelligence community to make public as much information about these programs as possible. fourth, reforming a high-level group of outside experts to review our entire intelligence and communications technologies. we need new thinking for a new era. >> as for the times of all of this, the president says the review process began befo
before this whole nsa story first erupted. is this announcement today in the east room a political necessity for the president? >> i think it is, brooke. i think the president's got to do a better job explaining to the american public why this nsa surveillance program exists. because there are a lot of skeptical people including in his own party among the democrats. why does the united states government need to do all this, go through all these -- have this massive program collecting information on everyone's phone numbers, e-mails. even though there is a process, legislative process, judicial process to make sure it isn't in violation of people's privacy, a lot of americans don't believe that. they're very nervous about it. they toedon't like it. i think the president recognizes and certainly his aides recognize they have to do a better swrjob explaining the necessity of this in the war against terrorism, if you will. i think that's what the president hopes to do. score some points and reassure the american public their privacy is being protected. >> right. wolf and jessica, thank
shows and lon snowden, father of edward snowden, the n.s.a. leaker, was on some of the chat shows and he was responding to what the president said during his press conference the day before about his son. i know eric, you're close to this story. you've spoken to the father before. >>eric: i have. i've spoken to lon personally. he's very concerned, a concerned father. he's also a concerned american. he's worried about what's going on. listen to what he had to say. he was with his attorney on one of the talk shows. >> at this point what i would like is for this to be vetted in open court for the american people to have all the facts. what i've seen is much political theater. i was dis pointed in the president's press conference. i believe that's driven by his clear understanding that the american people are absolutely unhappy with what they've learned and that more is going to be forthcoming. we do have a perception problem and we have to deal with that. we need to let the american public know that this program is a program that protects them but does not violate their privacy. for an indi

. >> reporter: an internal nsa audit in other top secret files revealed there were more than 2,000 violations in the recent 12-month period, mostly unintentional. the nsa says when mistakes are made, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. but the new report raises concerns about that balance of power. the "washington post" reported the chair of the senate intelligence committee diane feinstein wasn't even aware of the audit until it was reported in the paper. feinstein disputes that, but in a statement admitted that the committee can and should do more to independently verify that nsa's operations are inappropriate and that its awareness of incidents are accurate. and the top judge on the secretive court that approves surveillance programs says judges aren't able to independently verify whether the government violates the law, saying they are, quote, forced to rely upon the accuracy of the information that is provided to the court. critics have been demanding more oversight. >> why is the government spying on its own people?
and a half. >> let me switch gears and talk about the nsa surveillance program. the specific plan the president outlined on capitol hill, will it satisfy his critics that he has krit nicks both parties? >> the short answer is no. what has been most interesting is that, yes, he has krit nicks both parties but most of them have been to the left. libertarian republicans and of course liberal democrats. he's had the support of republicans or republican leadership in particular, it's been an area where they actually agree. the house speaker put out a statement saying this is absolutely the wrong thing to do, that he is trying to save face and that he is effectively caving to the liberal wing. as far as the liberal wing goes, they say it's a nice first step but they're going to continue to narrow it. they will have major hearings on this all fall. >> obama care has been a tough battle from the word go and why are conservatives still making an all-out effort against it? let's discuss with our cnn political commentators. let me play another clip from the president defending obama care. >>
to reform parts of those controversial nsa spying programs even though he says the spying is being done within the law. one change involves creating an independent attorney to challenge the government before the secret court that approves surveillance efforts. the president also wants more transparency overall. he plans to have an independent group of experts review the government's intelligence technologies and the president also voiced his opinion about nsa leaker edward snowden. >> i don't think mr. snowden was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made these leaks. my preference -- and i think the american people's preference -- would have been for a lawful orderly examination of these laws. >> on the same subject, we're learning top executives from bay area tech companies met with the president yesterday. representative from apple, google and at&t met at the white house to discuss their concerns about government surveillance and digital privacy. the tech companies are worried that information dem
